"Nothing about Elena and Damon will ever be firm, only because their relationship is so fiery and complicated," executive producer Caroline Dries told the news outlet. "But their feelings will be expressed by the end of the season." TV Guide went on to tease that the on-again, off-again couple will “share an intense, emotional scene” in the Season 5 finale.
We doubt we’ll have to wait that long to see any degree of reconciliation between these two. In the extended promo for tomorrow’s all-new episode, we see the two awkwardly discuss Damon’s recent “we can’t be friends” policy. And, in this behind-the-scenes shot, we see the two sharing a moment in one another’s arms.
Regardless of what happens in the episodes leading up to the season finale, it’s no secret that the big reveals — both of the emotional and action-oriented varieties — come in the season ender. And we know it’s going to be a particularly big one for Damon. Executive producer Julie Plec told E! Online: "Because of Markos's efforts to make the town of Mystic Falls a magic-free zone and the imminent destruction of the Other Side, lots of lives are in jeopardy and Damon has to, as he says, 'strap on his hero hair.'" Might the Delena romantic confession scene come in the midst of Damon’s heroism?
